With the evolution of BIM as the de facto workflow, architects increasingly receive consultant information in a BIM format.
New Stair Tool
Designing stairs is one of the most complex tasks in architecture. ARCHICAD 21’s new Stair Tool offers the most optimal stair designs to choose from in the context of the specific building.
ARCHICAD’s Predictive Design Technology™ offers multiple design solutions on the fly and makes sure that the stair will remain compliant.
Stairs consists of multiple sub-elements such as treads, risers, beams, stringers, monolithic or cantilevered structures. Each of these can be individually designed and configured with parametric capabilities.
Complex yet configurable railing systems can be created that are associated with Stairs, Slabs, Walls, Roofs or Meshes.
Create a unique, design-specific, parametric railing pattern and apply this across various building elements with a single click.
Use the Railing Pattern Editor to customize the patters while ARCHICAD will make sure that all pattern changes will be correctly updated along the entire railing system.
